Proceedings of a Seminar on Incentives That Enhance the Teaching Profession: A Discussion of the Policy Issues. Attracting Excellence: Call for Teacher Incentives Series.
Bartell, Carol A., Ed.
Proceedings of a conference on policy issues pertinent to the design and implementation of teacher incentive plans are presented in this report. Seven papers and reactions to them are presented, which include discussions on the definition and importance of teacher incentives, job redesign and its organizational impacts, constraint and variety perspectives, usefulness of "weak" initiatives, cost of teacher incentive plans, a model of differential incentives, and the teachers' point of view. Key elements of successful incentive programs are summarized, which include reduced professional isolationism, state financial aid, local autonomy, teacher involvement, and public support, based on immediacy, comprehensiveness, flexibility, and a holistic approach. References accompany each paper. (LMI)
